I just read in the 2008 "Book of the AR-15" that, due to high ammo costs, S&W plans to release a new M&P-15 model in 5.45x39 Russian. They said that the Russian ammo is an average of $200 cheaper per 1,000 rounds than 5.56mm and they wanted to produce a rifle that the "average" AR owner could actually afford to go out and shoot. I'm thinking that's all well and good, but I wonder how well the Russian round will feed in a magazine designed to fit an AR lower. Would'nt the 5.45x39 have some of the same feeding issues as the 7.62x39? They are both heavily tapered cases. Thoughts anyone?

As usual I'm a day late and a dollar short. Thanks for the link!
